Post 11.

With a badly twisted finger, a swollen knee and a broken pair of spectacles (All of them, the result of a basketball game gone wrong), I’m typing this post. It’s been so long since I’ve actually posted something on my blog, that I almost don’t know how to do it anymore.

This past one week in IIT Guwahati, has, to put it in a word, been ‘hectic’. With classes, labs, tutorials, basketball, tech-fest work, and the little bit of Personality Development Programme’s that we seniors hold for the freshers, I’ve hardly given any thought to the fact that I miss being at home in Dubai, I miss those evening I spent at my friend’s homes. I miss those few little things that I used to do. :)

But yes, I am back! To Guwahati, to my college, and this time as a senior. No more do I have to listen to what other people want me to do. No more do I have to run around doing errands for some random senior, whose name I don’t even know. No more do I have to make sure that I don’t get into any unecessary trouble. (Which, by the way, I don’t think will ever change. I ALWAYS get into trouble. :P)

And apart from the horrible weather, I must say, I enjoy being back. I’ve missed being in my room, with the mosquitoes and the lizards. I missed laughing with my friends when the mess worker calls the spoon, “Samas”. :)

I got to go to Hyderabad btw, and I must say, it felt GOOD. To finally meet all of those FIITJEE beggar-friends of mine. :P To go to IMAX to watch Inception.
To sit in my veranda and read my book, and just be in Hyderabad. :)

If I sound confused because of the way I refer to all three places and tell you how much I enjoy spending time in each of those places. Then let me tell you, it’s not because I’m confused.

It doesn’t matter if the place is in the middle of the desert, or if the place witnesses a bandh every week, or if the place is in the remotest corner of the country. It’s just that, all of these places? Believe it or not, these places are my homes. All of them. And that’s something I shall cherish. :)

Until next time,
